all about tracking & carrier information

Happiness is getting a package delivered right to you.

tracking your order


Target.com uses several methods and carriers to ship your packages. Once your order has entered the shipping process, you can track your order through the My Account link at the top of any page by following these steps:

1. Click on "My Account" at the top of any page.

2. If you are not yet signed in to your account, you will be prompted to sign in.

3. Select "Open and recently shipped orders" in the drop-down menu.

4. Click on "Track Packages" link.

5. On the Track Packages page, select the red "Track your Package" button to view current tracking information for your order*.

*For all transportation carrier shipments, you will see a tracking page designed by the transportation carrier with all of your shipment's information. If the page does not display your tracking information, return to the "Track Packages" page and copy the tracking number next to your order. Enter this tracking number on the transportation carrier shipment tracking page.  Please allow up to 24-48 hours for the tracking to begin working after the ship confirmation is sent.

For larger items, we may use a special delivery carrier to deliver your order.

Based on the delivery method for your order, specialty carriers will email you to introduce themselves, review potential delivery restrictions, and once your shipment is in transit they will provide an appointed day for delivery. This may be noted within the description of the item. Items that qualify for more than delivery to the door (entry into the home) require someone 18 years of age or older must be present to sign for the package. All other items will be delivered to the door and you will not need to be present.

These deliveries are made during the carrier's normal business hours and are completed within their contract guidelines. If the specialty carrier is unable to reach you by phone/email or there are delivery restrictions that prevent delivery, there may be a delay in your shipment or your order may be cancelled.
